Additional Washington Blooms


There is more than pink, yellow, and chartreuse to a Washington spring, and this is a respite of additional prettiness, kicked off by this beautiful Lenten rose, here nodding its flower heads in pretty agreement. Though these plants take a few years to get established (and young ones will indeed take a while before they bloom) they are astoundingly long-lived and reliable. (I’ve had one that has faithfully returned for fourteen years.)

As for the rest, it’s a wonderfully mixed bag – an orchid, some Virginia bluebells, and an American dogwood. Enjoy this pastel entry to the weekend.
